For additional information please contact Saskia Dean, FIGO Conference Manager
Congress rotates through five continents every three years: the Africa-Eastern Mediterranean, Asia-Oceania, Europe, Latin America and North America regions.
Six years ahead of the event, the General Assembly will decide on the country/territory in which the Congress will be held based on the recommendations of the Executive Board.
The FIGO Congress Organising Committee is responsible for all aspects of the organisation of the World Congress and, in addition, has a brief to investigate the feasibility of intermediate regional meetings, seminars or workshops according to perceived needs.
Scientific Programme Committee
Planning of the Scientific Programme for the Congress is delegated to a dedicated Scientific Programme Committee.
This is one of the most important elements of any FIGO World Congress and consists of seminars, 'meet the experts' sessions, debates, plenary sessions, discussions on new technology, new developments, updates and interactive sessions.
The programme includes oral free communications sessions and sponsored symposia.
